Connor has now lost two teeth; Kendra none.
I find this whole story fascinating and sad too - my babies are growing up.
It's so nice to have big kids who can clearly articulate "I can't have toast, Mummy, because it hurts my gums here".
Isn't that much better than 6-month old babies screaming? DIVINE.
Have I mentioned that I don't miss the baby stage?
If it were only up to me, we'd not have any of this Tooth Fairy nonsense but I go along with it since it seems the entire Jhb does.
I can't remember this being a thing in PE.
Anyway, the tooth fairy only pays R10 at our house and at "our Ballito house" as the kids call it.
These pics were taken on 2 May after the first one came out.
Then there was a second one "helped" out by his sister. They were playing rough (do your kids push and shove) and K accidentally knocked out the 2nd tooth. It was loose.
I'm not sure but I think I screamed louder than Connor.
(I'm not good with blood.. and there was a lot)
Fortunately D found the tooth somewhere in the Ballito lounge and we could do the Tooth Fairy in Ballito.
Connor is very excited about his money, of course.
I explained that he should tithe his R1 so God can bless the rest of his money and he said, "I don't want blessings; I want my money" which of course led us into a whole thing on tithing because if there's one thing I'm fervent about, it's that.
On the bright side, he had a nice smile on his 6th birthday; the tooth was only knocked out the following day.
How much does the Tooth Fairy pay at your house?
